This would be a great book if you are cooking for young children. The recipes are few ingredients, easy to put together, easy to cook and no strange, exotic or challenging ingredients. But the food here is way too basic for most adult tastes and even the teenagers in my family would find this food too simplistic. One reviewer referred to a recipe as "gourmet". Not even close!
My other complaint is that it uses a lot of processed foods: mac & cheese mix, biscuits in a tube, dry ranch dressing salad mix, canned soup, Cheez Whiz, Spam. I don't eat this way at home, why would I eat this way when I'm camping?
So unless you are a true novice at camp cooking or are feeding kids under the age of 10, don't bother. I couldn't even give my copy away to my other friends who camp.
One idea they give for using a pie iron is bread filled with pizza fillings and cooked in a pie iron to make individual pizzas. Eating pizza while camping sounds good to me! I thought that their use of hollowed out oranges was innovative; the oranges are filled with biscuit dough or blueberry muffin batter, wrapped in foil and baked on the coals. Not only do you get a cute holder for the rolls and muffins, but I would love the extra citrus flavor, too!
You can even eat gourmet dishes while you camp, like the pork chop dinner cooked in a skillet or the caramel apple crisp baked in a Dutch oven. My kid's all time favorite recipe for campout cooking was included, also -- banana boats, where you slice a banana (with the peel still on) and fill it with marshmallows and chocolate chips, wrap it all up in foil and put it on the coals until it is heated through. Well, the banana is healthy, right?
Campfire Cooking is a really helpful resource for outdoor cooking, chock full of lots of great recipes for family fun!
